In 1998-L to celebrate the Leopard, the South African Mint released a very Limited Issue Natura Launch Londolozi Leopard Gold Proof Coin struck in solid .9999 Gold with a special Mint Mark "L" weighing one ounce of pure Gold and has been Certified Slabbed and Graded by PCGS as PR69 DCAM.
The Leopard is the last of the Big 5 to be portrayed in this particular and very popular, Natura series.
The 1oz reverse design depicts the Leopard lazily lying in a tree - a very familiar picture as Leopards are much more at home in trees than any other African Cat.
The obverse shows the growling, fierce countenance of this powerful and solitary predator.
These legal tender coins have been struck to proof quality using specially prepared dies and highly polished blanks.
